Hi OP,
Welcome to The Hub!  Can you please create a new conversation and share with us a screenshot of the output you're seeing?
Also, let us know what version the controller is running.

Hi OP,

I agree with Drew, it would be best to create a new conversation for this with a screenshot of the output.

However, taking a bit of a shot in the dark, is the baud rate set correctly? The WM3600's console port runs at 19200 baud, and most PuTTY and most other terminal emulators default to 9600 baud. A baud rate mismatch could lead to garbled text being seen.

If you are connected to a WM3400/3600/3700 the serial port needs to be configured for 19200 baud... Sounds like you are trying 9600?
